I was born in Bairnsdale, Victoria, Gunai/Kurnai country, then moved to Churchill, Vic before moving to Heywood in Southwest Victoria.
My family has had a strong lineage of members that have served with my Great-Grandfather serving with his brothers in the First and Second World War as a result of this a building in Canberra was renamed to commentate them that building being Lovetts Tower. I joined in 2015 as I thought it would be a nice career change and I wasn’t wrong in that regard as I’ve been in almost 9 years and have enjoyed the majority of me time so far.  I have had the pleasure to play AFL for the national Army side and for the ADF Allstar that plays a curtain raiser for Port Adelaide during ANZAC Week.
